Concordia Wreck: Ship's Funnel Will Be Removed to Speed Up Working for Holdback System

By MarEx 2012-12-20 13:09:00

At Giglio Island, work continues without respite, day and night, seven days a week, in order to remove the Concordia wreck.

Following the completion of the wreck stabilization phase (at the beginning of November), Titan/Micoperi Consortium is currently working on the starboard area of the wreck to complete the holdback system, installing additional 8 anchor blocks, which will be operating during the parbuckling rotation phase.

In order to speed up supporting vessels’ operations inland the wreck, technicians agreed to remove the ship’s funnel, as well.

All other underwater activities are undergoing both offshore (drilling operations for platforms) and in the middle of the hull to place removable grout bags (more than 200 already installed), always keeping in mind the main priorities of the plan: ensuring safety at work and protecting the environment.
